Merry (late) Christmas, Happy New Year...

January 7, 2009

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, etc...

I haven't updated the blog in quite awhile and I apologize. My friend Jen called me today to make sure everything was o.k. so I am sure there are others that are wondering the same. I have no excuse for my absence other than the holidays, 3 BABIES, facebook (I'm addicted), 3 BABIES and a lousy cold.

Our holidays were wonderful and we hope yours were the same. The babies did well with their first visit to see the big guy in the red suit. The triplets also did a great job with traveling to their Nana and Papa's house for Christmas eve and traveling to their Grandma and Grandpa's house for Christmas day. They enjoyed spending time with all of their relatives: cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

Things have been rather uneventful and that is the way we would like to keep it. We have a busy week of doctor visits next week for synagis shots, 9 month check up and audiology appointment (for Cal). We will also be visiting our good NICU buddy, Adelyn, who will be having surgery at U of M. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

As for the individual babies, here are a few highlights:

Aidan rung in the new year with a new tooth! He was up at night for a week and a half before that little bugger finally popped through. How many teeth are there? Times three babies? OH BOY! Aidan is sitting up on his own and he loves to grab his brother's bib to pull him closer. Aidan loves to grab new toys and investigate/chew on them. He loves to splash around in the bath tub.

Brooklyn lets us know what she wants and when she wants it. She isn't a big fan of the whole napping during the day thing and she prefers a later bedtime than her brothers. She loves to be on her tiptoes and thinks her brothers are pretty fun to watch. Her favorite time of the day is when her Daddy comes home from work. She beams when she hears his voice and the smile she gives him when she sees him lights up the whole room She is also sitting up and loves bath time.

Calahan is the smiliest baby ever. He is very sensitive to his sister's loud screams and to new faces. He is content most of the time and an absolute joy to be around. Calahan is doing a lot of talking these days. He loves to splash around in the bath and can get the whole kitchen wet in minutes. Calahan loves to watch The Monkey Doos! In December I took Cal to the doctor and he had some x-rays done of his lungs. Everything looks fine. We are taking him to a pulminologist just to be sure.

All three of the babies are handling their cereal and vegetables very well (perhaps a little bit TOO well). The babies have eaten rice cereal, oatmeal, peas, green beans and sweet potatoes so far and they love it all.

Paul and I have never been so full on love. Aidan, Brooklyn and Calahan light up our worlds every day. God sure did know what he was doing when he blessed us with these three miracles and we are eternally grateful that he chose us to be their parents.

Again, I apologize for my lack of postings and I can't make any promises that I will do better. But I can promise you that we think of all of the friends and family that have been so helpful to us and we wish you a fabulous 2009!

Glad to hear your holidays were wonderful. Aidan, Brooklyn, and Calahan look sooo adorable in their Xmas gear. Can't wait for our next playdate and for RSV season to be over!
